Tollemache, Algernon Gray, 1805-1892

Brother of the Earl of Dysart. When he was a member of Parliament for Gratham (1832-1837) he became interested in the New Zealand Company and purchased 34 sections at Wellington and other sections in the Nelson settlement. He came to New Zealand in one of the earliest ships and became a large landed proprietor in several provinces. He financed many small farmers. He returned to England and in 1857 married Frances Louise, daughter of Hon Charles Tollemache. [Source: Dictionary of New Zealand Biography / Scholefield]
